When it comes to strings, it’s all about tension.
Frequently Asked Questions
Both the Country Series and Bluegrass Series strings are gauged exactly halfway between lights and mediums (.0125 / .0165 / .025 / .0335 / .0435 / .0545).
Both sets of strings have excellent volume and tone.
The difference is string tension:
The Bluegrass Series Strings are a little higher in tension which makes them a bit louder than the Country Series Strings. The higher tension also makes them feel closer to medium gauged strings. We also custom designed each string's tension for the optimal EQ and tone for bluegrass flatpicking.
The Country Series Strings have a little lower tension than the Bluegrass Strings. The lower tension makes the Country Series Strings very easy on the fingers. They have an authentic and natural tone that sounds great for playing country music.
